The BC Childrens Hospital Healing Art Experience

 

paintings-complete-bcch

I spent the middle part of the 2016 working on three commission pieces for the BC Childrens Hospital Healing Art Experience.  It was an honor and a pleasure creating these pieces for the processing/sedation room in the new acute care wing currently under construction.  The paintings will be digitally captured and expanded to 4 times the size of the originals.  The images will then be printed onto vinyl and installed on the walls and ceilings.  All three of the paintings tell a story.  I was very conscious of the fact that this work is special, and its purpose is to soothe and calm the children.  I can’t wait to see the work installed.  We will be invited to view the art in the summer of 2017.

New Works…working with the dotted line

I have recently discovered a new style of painting for me.  Inspired by Australian Aboriginal art, I am learning to build color by working with the dotted line.  This process is very mesmerizing and I seem to really enjoy the slow and steady process of creating an image dot by dot.

This painting has been an idea in my head for a few years…a swirly faded image that danced through my mind’s eye. Upon returning home from the Philippines, and after meeting my extended family and seeing the island where my parents grew up, it all became perfectly clear. This image holds many parts of me, the land I live in, the ancestors that that swim in my blood, the sun and the rain that nourish my body, my spirituality, and the path that I keep moving on. Each one of us wears our coats, and each is as beautiful and intriguing as the next.
